This was a fun gift store that gave visitors a good taste of the area. They have a variety of souvenirs and other items that appeal to a wide variety of interests. Our only complaint is that they charge you to see their live bears, which was disappointing. We understand charging to feed the bears, but it should be free... More

There is a lot to see here and it is a neat store to wander around; we did buy a few things and enjoyed visiting; I think it is worth seeing; we try to do a balance of free things and things we pay for, and visiting this store was one on our "free list." It has several types of... More

One of my favorite gift shops to visit when I'm in the area. This was my mom's first trip and she loved it there's a little something for everyone there Unfortunately they were closing early the day that we visited but we will definitely return

This is my second visit to this iconic store, this time without my kids. Be ready to spend hours in this place. I love all the unique collections that showcase the beauty of Tennessee, from the black bear collections, the beautiful clothing, divine fudge and the playful bears. Three Bears General Store is a landmark stop for travelers. Kids of... More

We stop in here every time we vacation to Pigeon Forge area for family souvenirs. They have a great selection of gifts, not just a t-shirt and coffee cup shop.

We stopped to shop here because of the sign to see the bears. When you get inside it actually cost to see the bears so we skipped that. Once you have seen a bear at a zoo then you have seen them all. The ice cream was good. There is a ton of the normal souvenirs available for purchase.

Come here every time we visit. Deals and steals. We always find one, the other, or both. Some stuff a little pricey but mostly everything affordable. I see where lots of people complain about prices in this area, but the way I look at it, the area is a tourist Mecca with everything that comes with it.

This store is great for souvenirs. Lots of items available such as purses, bags, shirts, stuffed animals, toys, Christmas decorations, glassware, cookware, etc. I enjoyed looking through the items available. There are two floors and an elevator.

We saw the sign out front of this store that said you could see live bears inside, so we stopped in with our two kids. Once you get inside, a big sign tells you to take the escalator upstairs to see the bears. It's not until you get upstairs and find it that they tell you they charge you $3.25... More
